|Aren't they pretty?|
As a complete surprise, Andi sent me a little birthday package that arrived mid-way through the month. I was so touched that she wanted to help me celebrate my birthday in such a generous and thoughtful way.
|Cascade Sport and Teas!|
I haven't knit with Cascade Sport before, but I love Cascade 220 (who doesn't right?) so am excited to have these in my stash now. Considering that I'm on a yarn diet and doing very well, by the way, it's such a treat to add to my stash without guilt! Thanks again, Andi -- you made my birthday extra special this year.
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that I bought myself a little gift, too, which is perfect for my new teas. It's a Pugg and I love it!! I got this one at the ICA in Boston, and it has a drop-in tea strainer so brews with tea bags and loose teas (the ones pictured here were given to me at Christmas by my lovely niece, Nikki).
It's raining here in NY today and I wish I could stay right here on my couch, with my new needles and yarn, my Pugg of tea, and a new pattern to knit but if I don't hurry up, I'm going to be late for work! This lovely scenario will have to wait until tonight.
